The future, what do you mean? How can we be in the future?


For decades many of us have been in awe of the possibility of the future. Not that long ago the thought of carrying a single panel computer capable of presenting music, film, books, and games was nothing more than science fiction.

I live by the belief that if man can envisage it, people can create it.

Of course, there is the possibility of going too far, as is famously shown in Planet Of The Apes, circa 1968.

For now we can sit back and relax with a small and hopefully harmless portion of technology that seemingly has the effect of enhancing our lives.

Tim and David delve into Amazon’s Android App store and disagree, then a short rant on the TSA performing pat downs on children. Also, Cisco has killed off the Flip, and Tim and David spend just a few moments on ideas that no one had at Cisco to rescue the produce, apparently. Finally, Nintendo is rumored to be releasing a new home console system very soon, so the topic turns to the Wii and what Nintendo should have in the next system.

The Daily Discussion
TechFan #18

On February 4, 2011, in Podcast, TechFan, by Tim Robertson
Tim and David take a look at the NEW publication, The Daily. Is the subscription magazine on iPad finally done right, or is it more of the same? Macworld Expo 2011 has come and gone, and the guys have some ideas on how to make it better next year. Plus, Sony introduces the new PSP 2, or whatever it will be called, and Nintendo states that download games will be tied to devise, NOT to user accounts. Much fodder to chew on this week!

RetroPad USB NES Controller – Review and Interview

On February 11, 2004, in Review, by Tim Robertson

RetroPad USB NES Controller
Company: RetroZone
Price: $25.00 US

My first home video game system was, not surprisingly, an Atari 2600. I loved that machine, and while PacMan for the 2600 was possibly the worse port of a video game ever, it was what I sat up dreaming about before Christmas day. My love of video games continued, and by the mid-1980’s, it was for the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES. What I really liked about the NES, besides the better and more colorful graphics, was the controller. The NES game pad was a huge improvement over the cruddy joystick that shipped with the Atari units before it.
